What is private healthcare? What is ERISA?

You may receive health and medical insurance coverage through your employment. If, as a result of your injuries, you have received medical care which your employee health plan paid for, the health plan may be entitled to reimbursement for those expenses from any settlement you receive. This is called subrogation or third-party reimbursement, and your employee health plan may place a lien on your settlement. These types of employee plans are often referred to as ERISA. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, or ERISA, protects the interests of employees and their beneficiaries who are participating in health and welfare benefit plans, and ensures that employees receive pensions and group sponsored health and welfare benefits promised by their employers.

Introduction to Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) Part 1 of 4 by Gary Young
 
05:43
Hello, my name is Gary Young and I'm a partner here at Scarinci Hollenbeck with special emphasis in labor and employment law. You are watching part one of a series of videos where I explain and introduce to you the complicated but important world of The Employee Retirement Income Security Act otherwise known as ERISA. If your company sponsors a benefit plan or is considering putting a benefit plan in place, you should at least have a working understanding of how ERISA may impact the benefit arrangements that you establish for your employees. The broad scope of ERISA's coverage has made this law the controlling legal framework for benefit plans of private employers in the US. Ignorance of ERISA can create significant legal risks to companies. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA"), is considered one of the most complex federal statutes ever enacted. Its impact on employee benefit plans (retirement and welfare plans) is so extensive that every sponsor of a plan needs to be fully aware of what ERISA is, whether an employer's plan is covered by the law, how ERISA works and why certain provisions exist. ERISA is codified as part of Title 29 of the United States Code (many of the provisions that are found in Titles II and III also appear in the Internal Revenue Code). ERISA enforces the legal requirements that apply to the formulation and administration of "employee benefit plans" which includes: • "employee retirement plans" - which mean any plan, fund, or program maintained by an employer or by an employee organization, which provides retirement income to employees; and • "employee welfare benefit plans" - which means any plan, fund, or program maintained by an employer or by an employee organization, or by both, which provides through the purchase of insurance or otherwise, medical, surgical, or hospital care or benefits, or benefits in the event of sickness, accident, disability, death or unemployment, or any other benefit other than pensions on retirement or death. If an employer provides these types of benefits to its employees, it must comply with ERISA. ERISA covers everything from required plan provisions to how plans must be administered. Subtitle B (Regulatory Provisions) includes the following: Title I -- Reporting and Disclosure; Title II -- Participation and Vesting; Title III -- Funding; Title IV -- Fiduciary Responsibility; and Part V -- Administration and Enforcement. Responsibility over these titles is divided between the U.S. Department of Labor and the IRS. ERISA does the following: WATCH THE VIDEO TO FIND OUT MORE

JP- It has become common in personal injury cases for health care insurers, private health care insurers, to claim that they are entitled to get reimbursement out of a personal injury case. The only type of plan that is entitled to get paid out of a personal injury case are called ERISA plans. And it is important that your lawyer is familiar with the law and can identify what this very technical type of plan is. If not you’re just giving away your money.

Core Wrap SPD Plan Document to Avoid the ACA $110 per day/ee fine
 
03:53
Bradenton, FL – Core Documents’ Wrap SPD Plan Document is available for a $99 one-time fee. You only update your Wrap SPD Plan Document as your benefit options change. Employers must prepare an ERISA Wrap SPD to go with their Certificate of Insurance. Here are the ERISA Wrap SPD Plan Document requirements as succinctly as possible: - If you offer group health insurance you’re now required by ERISA law, enforced by the Department of Labor and now the Affordable Care Act, to distribute a Wrap SPD within 120 days of the Plan’s effective date. - Failure to provide the ERISA Wrap SPD within 30 days of request triggers a $110 a day fine per participant. Not having an ERISA Wrap SPD can also trigger an audit by the Department of Labor. - The insurance company’s Master Contract, Certificate of Coverage, or Summary of Benefits is not a Wrap SPD. - This requirement applies to all employer sponsored group health insurance offerings, including a one-person plan. Core Documents is now offering ERISA “Wrap” Summary Plan Description (SPD) documents for employer sponsored group health insurance plans. The product name “Wrap” as they’re now referred to in the marketplace, is a bit of a confusing misnomer. Many believe the term “wrap” implies wrapping all employer sponsored health and welfare benefit plans and pension plans into one Summary Plan Description for ease of 5500 filing. This is where the confusion comes in. The term “wrap” can also imply a “wrapper” for the employer group health insurance plan. Group insurance Certificates of Insurance are typically not SPDs because they do not contain all of the language required by ERISA and now the Affordable Care Act. An employer must prepare an ERISA “wrapper” to supplement the Certificate of Insurance. Together, the wrapper and Certificate of Insurance comprise a proper SPD. The Wrap Summary Plan Description, or SPD, is the main vehicle for communicating plan rights and obligations to participants and beneficiaries. As the name suggests, it is a summary of the material provisions of the plan document, and it should be understandable to the average participant of the employer. However, in the context of health & welfare benefit plans, it is not uncommon for the Wrap SPD to be a combination of a complete description of the plan’s terms and conditions, such as a Certificate of Coverage, and the required ERISA/ACA disclosure language. Note: An insurance company’s Master Contract, Certificate of Coverage, or Summary of Benefits is not a plan document or SPD. Mon-Fri 9 AM to 5 PM 888-755-3373 www,CoreDocuments.com www.CoreSPD.com

Employee Retirement Income Security Act or ERISA. ERISA requires all organizations offering group insurance plans to provide employees with a Summary Plan Description (SPD) for each health and welfare benefit such as medical, dental, life, disability and Section 125 plans. An employer has the option to use a single “Wrap Document” which serves as the Summary Plan Description for several combined plans. Landrum has secured the proper ERISA documents for the plans offered through us, and we have sent them to all eligible employees. For the benefit plans you offer that are not sponsored by Landrum, we recommend you maintain proper ERISA plan documents for them. While this requirement has been in place for many years, with the passage of the Affordable Care Act, there will be a greater emphasis on these requirements, even for smaller employers. We’re recommending our client-employers be prepared in the event of an audit. Non-compliance with the regulations can result in significant fines, so it is worthwhile to have the documents in order. We recommend you contact your CPA or other provider to ensure you have the proper ERISA documents and Summary Plan Description for your non-Landrum plans. If you don’t have an ERISA plan document for plans you sponsor, or if you would like to restate your current plan document, MedCom, has agreed to offer favorable pricing to Landrum clients

Health insurance is insurance against the risk of incurring medical expenses among individuals. By estimating the overall risk of health care and health system expenses, among a targeted group, an insurer can develop a routine finance structure, such as a monthly premium or payroll tax, to ensure that money is available to pay for the health care benefits specified in the insurance agreement. The benefit is administered by a central organization such as a government agency, private business, or not-for-profit entity. According to the Health Insurance Association of America, health insurance is defined as "coverage that provides for the payments of benefits as a result of sickness or injury. It includes insurance for losses from accident, medical expense, disability, or accidental death and dismemberment" | Policy Bazaar: Ideal Health Insurance | 9 Things to consider Before Buying a Health insurance/Mediclaim [Hindi] | मेडीक्लेम स्वास्थ्य बीमा में ध्यान रखें Remember in Health Insurance or Mediclaim Hindi हिन्दी | Best individual health insurance policy in india | Health Insurance Explained | A health insurance policy is: A contract between an insurance provider (e.g. an insurance company or a government) and an individual or his/her sponsor (e.g. an employer or a community organization). The contract can be renewable (e.g. annually, monthly) or lifelong in the case of private insurance, or be mandatory for all citizens in the case of national plans. The type and amount of health care costs that will be covered by the health insurance provider are specified in writing, in a member contract or "Evidence of Coverage" booklet for private insurance, or in a national health policy for public insurance. | Best health insurance plan for your parents | Future of Health Insurance in India by Mr. Antony Jacob,CEO of Apollo Munich | New India Health Insurance Plans | Smart Money- Choosing The Right Medical Cover | Why Health Insurance is needed?| (US specific) Provided by an employer-sponsored self-funded ERISA plan. The company generally advertises that they have one of the big insurance companies. However, in an ERISA case, that insurance company "doesn't engage in the act of insurance", they just administer it. Therefore, ERISA plans are not subject to state laws. ERISA plans are governed by federal law under the jurisdiction of the US Department of Labor (USDOL). The specific benefits or coverage details are found in the Summary Plan Description (SPD). An appeal must go through the insurance company, then to the Employer's Plan Fiduciary. If still required, the Fiduciary's decision can be brought to the USDOL to review for ERISA compliance, and then file a lawsuit in federal court.

According to the Health Insurance Association of America, health insurance is defined as "coverage that provides for the payments of benefits as a result of sickness or injury. Includes insurance for losses from accident, medical expense, disability, or accidental death and dismemberment" (pg. 225).[1] Get lower costs on monthly premiums in the Health Insurance Marketplace https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZ7vmXh63Jw How To Get Health Insurance For Low Income Individuals https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7cTwqGDLB8 Background[edit] A health insurance policy is: A contract between an insurance provider (e.g. an insurance company or a government) and an individual or his/her sponsor (e.g. an employer or a community organization). The contract can be renewable (e.g. annually, monthly) or lifelong in the case of private insurance, or be mandatory for all citizens in the case of national plans.

Deductible: The amount that the insured must pay out-of-pocket before the health insurer pays its share. For example, policy-holders might have to pay a $500 deductible per year, before any of their health care is covered by the health insurer. It may take several doctor's visits or prescription refills before the insured person reaches the deductible and the insurance company starts to pay for care. Furthermore, most policies do not apply co-pays for doctor's visits or prescriptions against your deductible. Co-payment: The amount that the insured person must pay out of pocket before the health insurer pays for a particular visit or service. For example, an insured person might pay a $45 co-payment for a doctor's visit, or to obtain a prescription. A co-payment must be paid each time a particular service is obtained. Coinsurance: Instead of, or in addition to, paying a fixed amount up front (a co-payment), the co-insurance is a percentage of the total cost that insured person may also pay. For example, the member might have to pay 20% of the cost of a surgery over and above a co-payment, while the insurance company pays the other 80%. If there is an upper limit on coinsurance, the policy-holder could end up owing very little, or a great deal, depending on the actual costs of the services they obtain.

Exclusions: Not all services are covered. The insured are generally expected to pay the full cost of non-covered services out of their own pockets. Coverage limits: Some health insurance policies only pay for health care up to a certain dollar amount. The insured person may be expected to pay any charges in excess of the health plan's maximum payment for a specific service. In addition, some insurance company schemes have annual or lifetime coverage maxima. In these cases, the health plan will stop payment when they reach the benefit maximum, and the policy-holder must pay all remaining costs.

What is COBRA insurance?

COBRA is not a car or a snake! It's the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. It's continuation of your employer-based health insurance coverage, created by the federal government, when you lose your employer group plan. But COBRA is limited. It's more expensive because you're paying your half as well as your employers have of the premium or 100%. Duration of continuation is 18 months but can last up to 36 months, depending on your situation. Then you need your own individual plan. So after COBRA, Get alternative affordable health insurance in Georgia! www.georgiahealthinsuranceratesplans.com Back in 1985, Congress signed into law The Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 (or COBRA). It was signed into law by President Ronald Regan. The law mandates that once an employee leaves their place of employment, he or she can retain their health insurance. COBRA allows you to continue group health coverage provided by an employer group health plan for limited periods of time under certain circumstances such: • Voluntary or involuntary job loss, between Jobs, lay off, on strike, reduction of hours, job transition • Death, divorce, and other life events • A Recent College Graduate • Waiting for Employer Group Coverage • A Temporary or Seasonal Employee • A Dependent No Longer Covered on Parent's Plan Typically, the expense of employer-subsidizes health insurance is shared by the employer and its pool of employees. The employer contribution percentage varies for each company but it's usually 50% to 80%. So now you see the problem. If you leave your employer, they no longer carry their share of the percentage so you have to pay, in some cases, more than 100% of the premium. COBRA allows you to keep your insurance but at a price. So you have two choices. Pay the price or get cheap, affordable COBRA alternative insurance. That's basically individual and family insurance offered by top insurance companies like; Aetna, Assurant, BlueCross Blue Shield of Georgia (BCBSGA), Coventry Health Care (CVTY), Kaiser Permanente and United Healthcare.

The Employee Benefit Security Administration (EBSA) is an agency within the Department of Labor (DOL). Its sole purpose is to enforce the provisions and regulations mandated by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974. The agency’s job is to investigate or audit an employee benefit plan’s compliance with various federal laws including the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act, commonly known as “Obamacare.” If you are selected for an EBSA audit they will generally require your company to submit specific records and documents related to your employer sponsored health and welfare benefits plans. Typically, an EBSA audit will begin when your human resource department receives a fax from the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) requesting a response on 21 specific health and welfare related compliance questions. Plan administrators are typically given 7-10 business days to respond. According to the Department of Labor, almost 3 out of 4 investigations result in penalties and corrective action. Please call Barkley Insurance & Risk Management if you are interested in a compliance review. (805) 483-1995.

High Court Affirms ERISA Preemption | March 16, 2016

The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed an appellate court’s decision holding that ERISA preempts (that is, supersedes) a Vermont health data reporting statute. The Court ruled in favor of self-insured ERISA health plan sponsors. In reaching its preemption decision, the Court concluded that reporting, disclosure and recordkeeping, which are central aspects of the Vermont statute, are integral parts of ERISA. The Supreme Court is not finished defining ERISA preemption doctrine, however; and views of the next justice may result in a change in this area of the law. Healthcare compliance expert Dan Kuperstein discusses key facts in the case.

Fiduciary Liability Insurance
 
00:32
Company clients that sponsor an employee benefit plan have risks that fall under the general rubric of “fiduciary liability.” Fiduciary Liability insurance can be issued to either the employer that sponsors the benefits plan or to the plan itself. It is appropriate for retirement plans, health plans, life insurance and disability plans, and employee benefits plans of all kinds. Further, coverage is not limited to ERISA plans, so if your clients have a non-ERISA benefits plan for which they need fiduciary liability insurance, you can also turn to Hartan to learn about the solutions we have available. Fiduciary liability insurance protects the insured against allegations that the fiduciary—the money or benefits handler—has breached their duty. The accusation can focus on an error or negligence in administering a plan, including but not necessarily limited to misinterpretation of plan documents, providing imprudent investment options to plan participants, misrepresenting investments, mishandling enrollment or other paperwork, and giving bad advice or faulty instructions to participants. Coverage Options Handling financial or medical benefits plans can be highly complex, and helping to protect your insureds’ fiduciaries reflects that. Our staff is immersed in the risk landscape of the financial services sector and will provide you with solid advice and sound insurance solutions to present to your clients. We can provide programs that cover expenses associated with civil lawsuits, written demands for damages that haven’t proceeded to court, administrative or regulatory actions, and investigations by the government or an official agency. Policy coverage options can include legal defense fees, awards to or settlements with claimants, and voluntary correction programs even when there isn’t a claim. The specific coverage you secure depends on the insurance agreement selected. Many of our carriers offer ERISA bonds, which are required by law for all applicable plans, as well as employment benefit liability insurance endorsements. Talk to us about fiduciary liability insurance plans. We invite you to take a look at the specific areas where our wholesale operation can serve you.

How Employment Practices Liability Insurance Works
 
01:02
Employment Practices Liability (EPL) insurance is designed to cover employers against employee-related claims such issues as discrimination, sexual harassment, and wrongful termination. A policy is typically written either on a stand-alone basis or as an addition to an employer’s management liability policies, including Directors and Officers (D&O), Employers Liability and Errors & Omissions. A standalone policy is usually preferable to having the coverage endorsed on another policy because of the potential to exhaust the EPL limits by claims made under other coverages. What’s key in purchasing the right type of coverage and the limits sufficient enough for a specific firm is to work with an insurance professional who understands the product inside and out and the various policy forms available. There are many insurance companies that sell EPL coverage with a wide range of provisions, making this a highly specialized field where expertise is critical. For example, important provisions to examine carefully include the general insuring language in the policy and its exclusions. In general, an Employment Practices Liability policy offers broad coverage for claims typical in wrongful termination or employment discrimination cases. The policy is written on a claims-made basis with defense costs within its limits. A lawsuit, an administrative proceeding, or a written claim of discrimination, sexual harassment, or wrongful termination will trigger the coverage to respond. In addition, a policy will cover claims from a variety of other types of inappropriate workplace conduct, including (but not limited to) employment-related defamation, invasion of privacy, failure to promote, deprivation of a career opportunity, and negligent evaluation. A policy will cover directors and officers, management personnel, and employees as insureds. Policies typically exclude coverage for claims involving ERISA, WARN acts (plant closings), unemployment benefits, COBRA, breach of contract and claims related to National Labor Relations Act. EPL insurance policies do not usually cover criminal fines, civil fines, penalties or punitive damages. They also generally exclude claims for bodily injury and property damage, as there are other types of policies an employer can purchase that cover those claims. Liability for acts involving intentional wrongdoing is also generally excluded by EPLI policies. However, most policies cover claims for emotional distress or mental anguish associated with covered losses. The cost for Employment Practices Liability insurance is based on a number of factors such as the size of the company, the type of business, the number of employees, where the business is located, the number of claims and lawsuits previously filed and the length of time the company has been in business. Insurance companies may also consider other factors when deciding the cost of the premium and structuring a policy best suited for the company. Again, EPL insurance coverage varies from policy to policy, making it very important for an insured to understand the extent, length, and limitations of the coverage being purchased. At Axis Insurance Services, we specialize in providing EPL solutions for a wide range of businesses across many industry sectors. We work with a number of insurers to obtain the best policy at competitive rates for our customers. Give us a call at (877) 787-5258 to discuss how we can help you best protect your firm. http://www.errors-omissions.com/2014/08/employment-practices-liability-insurance-works/

Retirement’s Healthcare Options are Too Many to Weigh on Your Own - Right on the Money - Part 5 of 5
 
11:12
Sub Headline: Medicare is but one leg of the retirement planning journey Synopsis: An expert who can navigate healthcare’s options and requirements can be highly beneficial to clients transitioning from employer or private healthcare plans to Medicare. Watch the video interview with retirement specialist Rick McCowan. Content: Baby Boomers overly focused on assets as they consider retirement would do well to aggressively plan for the impacts of a rapidly changing healthcare landscape. Accustomed to the relatively straightforward enrollment process of traditional healthcare plans sponsored by insurers and employers, aging workers face a puzzle of options in Medicare that can financially backfire without counsel regarding income, distributions and taxes. Healthcare considerations only add to the maze of alphabet soup in retirement. Faced with having to understand the complexities of IRAs, 401(K)s, ERISA, RMDs, Social Security and AGI, retirees can now add to the list Medicare, Medigap, HSAs Plan B, Plan D and Cadillac plans. By affiliating or hiring a retirement plan specialist who’s both financially and healthcare astute, consumers will better understand the various factors and the importance of planned integration. A few of the major themes include: • Though the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) has broadened insurability, the impacts on carriers’ profitability ultimately affects all insured, regardless of age, due to higher premiums or lower deductibles • Medicare candidates who fail to enroll during the three months that precede or follow the month of their 65th birthday miss open and automatic enrollment, and are subject to medical qualification thereafter. • Medicare premiums are means-tested against two years of prior income, necessitating advance planning in order to control premiums. • Once enrolled, participants generally realize savings from prior premiums and improved coverage • Unused Health Savings Account (HSA) dollars can be applied to Medicare premiums • Once in a lifetime, and subject to limits, an IRA may be able to transfer to an HSA account tax-free • So-called Medigap, or supplemental, plans can be purchased from private insurers to partially cover expenses not covered by Medicare, but exclude long-term, dental and vision care Accordingly, the services of a retirement planning expert accustomed to managing income, distributions, taxes and healthcare spending can significantly help retirees maximize spendable income and allocate their resources through their life expectancy Syndicated financial columnist Steve Savant interviews top retirement specialists in their field of expertise.

http://www.robertsbartolic.com/ 510.992.6130 Your employer-sponsored health insurance plan will offer you COBRA coverage after you are no longer eligible for the employer-subsidized participation. COBRA ordinarily allows you to buy the insurance coverage for 18 months. If you can demonstrate you were awarded benefits for disability from the Social Security Administration, your coverage under COBRA can be extended even further. Upon exhaustion of COBRA benefits, you will have to qualify for early Medicare benefits. Keep in mind, however, that beginning in 2014, you will be able to purchase individual insurance without being denied on the basis of preexisting conditions. We established Roberts Bartolic LLP to help clients prove their entitlement to employer-provided benefits. We understand the importance of these benefits to provide compensation our clients need to pay for their basic life needs. We also understand ERISA’s complex rules and regulations. By remaining on the front line of developments in ERISA, we provide our clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area with the quality representation they need to get through challenging situations.
